Canadian regulations imposing limited trade sanctions against Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia were recently repealed following the termination of similar measures imposed on the two countries by U.N. Security Council Resolutions 2283 and 2288. The Canadian sanctions had focused primarily on the supply, sale, export or shipment of arms and related material to Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia.
In addition, the Government of Canada has also adopted amendments (here and here) that add a total of 44 individuals to part 2 of Schedule 1 of the Special Economic Measures (Syria) Regulations (the Syria SEMA Regulations). Five entities have also been added to part 1 of the same Schedule, while 2 individuals who were previously named are no longer included. The Syria SEMA Regulations prohibit persons in Canada and Canadians abroad from dealing in the property of the designated persons and have been in force since May 24, 2011.
